Matthew & Karine Maynard, Tree House Railing, 2008. Forged, welded and riveted. Wire-brushed with clear enamel topcoat/ finish. Mild steel with hand worked cedar hand grip.
The inspiration for this railing came from the client's memories of playing in the woods as a child. The railings whimsical design recalls these experiences. The steel is forged and formed to fit the cedar hand grip, which is an assembly of six individual pieces lap jointed, glued and doweled together. The newel post was forged from 2-inch solid square stock.
